Great Mid-Grade Camera

Brandon, Amazon
16 December 2014
  • Summary: The picture quality that this camera produces exceeds my expectations, even with the kit lens. The camera body is small but still easy to hold and steady and feels to be made of high quality. It's light weight and easy to carry around, especially when using a compact lens. The micro 4/3 lens selection is pretty good and the cost of the lenses is significantly less than equivalent DSLRs. I'm very, very happy with this camera, especially considering the price.

Great little camera if you don't mind the multifunction control dial

Logan3-1639, Amazon
11 December 2014
  • Summary: This compact M4/3 camera is capable of producing outstanding photos - as good as any shot by the Olympus OM-D series of cameras. The only reason I don't give it five stars is that the handling is not ideal for me. The control dial (with integrated buttons) on the back of the E-PL5 combines several controls in one input mechanism. Setting aperture and exposure compensation can be tricky, and I found myself often accidentally pressing the wrong part of the controller.

Best Value for the money in micro four thirds system

Michael S. Klusek, Amazon
10 December 2014
  • Summary: Bought this in September. I did a lot of research (engineer by training) and this camera had the best combination of image quality, very good lens selection, and features for the money. I knew the tradeoffs going in. I would definitely like another top dial for EV adjustment. Using the dial wheel on back is not efficient. If I paid double for the body I could have gone for the OMD-M10. So if you have the money go that route.

Incredible camera for beginner and pro

Travelpro1008, Amazon
28 October 2014
  • Summary: This is my second micro 4/3 camera. I love the size and capabilities. I have a Nikon D90 which I love too, but it's so much bulkier and hard to travel with that I use this camera exclusively now. I have the body and two lenses that I carry in a bag that's barely bigger than my Nikon camera itself. The images are amazing. The touch screen is great although I haven't used it much.

Great IQ but not exactly E-P5's little brother

Omer Terrason, Amazon
12 September 2014
  • Summary: I loved the camera's IQ, which is in line with its big brother the PEN E-P5. That said, the controls and buttons are too plasticy, and inadvertently get budged while shooting. I found the size of the body to be just perfect as a carry around camera when coupled with a pancake lens, like the Lumix 20mm f/1.7 Mark II or the M.Zuiko 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6. It only sports the 3-axis IBIS, same as in the older PEN E-P3.
